Mardi Barnes (CoFounder and CoDirector)

Mardi champions the use of Social Media – actively engaging in Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube, attending conferences, and workshops. Mardi uses social media both to attract new clients and also as part of the suite of marketing tools offered to clients. Constantly monitor client accounts for engagement, impressions and general talk about the brand. Mardi uses her broad understanding of online technologies and approaches (design, implementation, back-end, hosting) to sell to both web-savvy and web-shy clients, providing quotes, proposals, marketing and social media strategy to prospect clients, taking particular delight in my ability to add value through bringing fresh ideas to the client’s business. I also maintained a strong connection with many clients brought into the business.
